Wooldridge Boats has been blessed with many customers of superior boating skills over almost 100 years of boat building. These are folks from whom we share and learn.
These relationships speed along the evolution of boats, as was the case with the AK XL Sportjet and TJM (Alaska Outdoors Forum/Alaska Power Boating). This guy is a serious boater and his photo and video work is heralded by many. His forte is Sportjets and he recognizes and appreciates boat designs that work.
That fact resulted in TJM buying the first Wooldridge AK XL with a Sportjet (200hp Optimax powerhead with Mercury inboard jet drive) for sporty performance and great handling. He’s been putting it through the paces and posting on Alaska Powerboating as he continues to run and challenge the boat. We excerpted some of his comments from an earlier post to share his thoughts on the Wooldridge AK XL Sportjet.
